President Donald Trump’s legal team is preparing answers to written questions provided by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The move represents a major development after months of negotiations and signals that the Mueller investigation could be entering a final phase with regard to the President.

You can bet CNN would never give all the news. Nothing about how today the co-founder of the firm behind the Steele dossier, Glenn Simpson, will invoke the Fifth Amendment to avoid testifying before Congress next week, his lawyer has told Congress. Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told the House Judiciary Committee Chairman that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.” Simpson had been subpoenaed after he said he would not appear voluntarily for an interview before members of the House Judiciary committee. There are many questions about the Steele dossier that need to be explored and on top of that Simpson helped arrange meetings between Steele and journalists from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, and Yahoo! News. It's more than clear that Fusion GPS has helped plant anti-Trump news stories with numerous news outlets.

Simpson lied in the past when he testified that he met Justice Department official Ohr, whom he was leaning on to bug Trump campaign staff, only once – after the election, and that only at Ohr’s request. He met him also before the election and there seems to have been more than just a nice chat. Ohr’s wife, Nellie, after all, worked for Fusion GPS while the firm was compiling the dossier, and was seen the best person through whom Fusion could work out some kind of collaboration with the Department of justice.

Now, it's just too obvious to me that the CNN crowd consists mostly of zombies who aren't able and actually are afraid to process information like this, but one never knows if there may be some independent thinkers among the herd of sheep.

The President should have to answer the written questions himself without help, maybe before a witness

Man Yau Edwin Law · October 12, 2018 at 4:03 am

Psychopath Mafia arrogant Trump Hitler has no gut and no ability to sit down with Muller in answering criminal questions because of Trump's low education, knowledge, experience and low literacy.

Marty Bogoratt · October 12, 2018 at 4:05 am

G-d gave you a brain, think for your self. Trump has done more for you, your city, your state, your country. come on open your mind and dont get on the train of the Democrats that destroyes

For close to 50 years, from 5 time draft-dodger to racist landlord to tax fraudster (1/2 billiion !) to sexual predator to money launderer to Trump University perpetrator to Putin's puppet, Trump the pathological liar, who surrounds himself with the worst kind (Roy Cohen, Satler, Stone, Manafort, Flynn, Cohen, Gates, Stephen Miller, et al), he has been able to escape punishment, which is a sad indictment of US Law Enforcement's corruption or incompetence, will have, finally, met his nemesis in Mueller, a war hero, and the premiere prosecutor of his generation. The ugly denouement of Trump the Great White Dope will be such a joy to watch, and relish

Tom the Swede · October 12, 2018 at 5:58 am

Even though he will read out written answers, how fast do you think it will take before he goes off script?

Doe Duckie · October 12, 2018 at 6:14 am

If Mueller already has the answers and they put Trump in the negative, that would be the holy grail of the left side loonies' desperate smear attempt on POTUS. Too close to midterms to help so I think they're gonna wait til AFTER to let the people in on the redundant investigation that their MEGA tax dollars were invested in. WWG1WGA!!

Louise Dean · October 12, 2018 at 6:18 am

No, no answers in writing..have this conning thief trump face the music like all other criminals….what kind of laws are these …so this REPULSIVE slugg gets special privelages…what a joke this BAFFON is hiding BEHIND his lawyers like all guilty COWARDS..well if this pig is allowed to get away without facing mueller..than these privelages will also certainly be the new PRESIDENT for all criminals from now on to use…ridiculous .

Perjury trap. It's the only real weapon that Mueller has had since day one.

go block traffic, fking libtards

Trond Zaphirax · October 12, 2018 at 7:12 am

This sounds like Mueller is prepared to wrapping up his investigation. This is something he would do after he is finished with all the other witnesses.

Dustin Stevens · October 12, 2018 at 7:17 am

Jay Jay · October 12, 2018 at 7:38 am

What.. President Man Child Collusion Reactionary Obstruction Transparent need Lawyers to invent his answers for him! But I thought Trump knows everything. Trump keeps saying he's available for a FBI interview but avoid it like the plague. What a fake arsed bitch. Worst President in History.

alvin081988 · October 12, 2018 at 7:39 am

Only Trump needs preparations…The last president was impeached even though he prepared for it and was caught lying ….what makes USA think Trump won't do the same thing

TheHonkster7 · October 12, 2018 at 7:42 am

Hillary Clinton went through 11 hours of questioning about Benghazi and they found nothing in 9 investigations .
Your boy Trump can't even face 10 minutes of questions and his lawyers know it , why does the President need his lawyers to do his homework for him ? If Hillary had tried this shit would've hit the fan . GOP and Trumpanzees are the purest form of hypocrite on the planet . https://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2015/10/22/451012235/clinton-endures-an-11-hour-grilling-before-benghazi-committee . Trump is a gutless coward that would perjure himself in 5 minutes and have a tantrum the next minute , such a beta cuck .

Voice O'Reason · October 12, 2018 at 8:38 am

I guess everything isn't equal where justice is concerned in America. So Trump's lawyers will submit written answers? Is this now the norm for all potential crooks in America?

Sara Elias · October 12, 2018 at 9:00 am

I really buffer for having Moeller talk with the orange buffoon versus him writing things down but I will take what Moeller gives to me of his reporting’s.

Anita B. · October 12, 2018 at 9:00 am

lawyers answering questions in a specific and direct manner is like stepping on a beehive and. expecting not to get stung. ,🐝

Utha · October 12, 2018 at 9:08 am

Trump's lawyers and everyone other than Trump know that he is incapable of telling the truth. This has been proven many times previously.
